    On a recent 3 day trip to Maine I wanted to photograph some lighthouses.
    The first stop was Portsmouth Harbor in Fort McClary Park.

    It was overcast and drizzling but it was a beautiful place so I shot off a bunch of shots.

    I tried to capture in this image the feeling of the the day.
    This is actually 3 images run through HDR Pro in CS5.
    In PS I just re-cropped and ran the image through Topaz Simplify.

    Please C&C this (these) for me.
    I'm also posting the same image before running it through Topaz Simplify.

    Topaz simplify softens up the image quite a lot. From your 2 smallish posted pics the softened version seems to make a more visually pleasant picture and probably rescues the original which you may have otherwise deleted. How does it look at original size and would you pay to have it printed & framed?

    It's the softness I like and it kind of gives the feeling of the overcast rainy day.
    I'll print it myself to 14X10 and see what it looks like and decide if it needs some changes, is good as is or it isn't going to work but yes, this may get framed.

    I was hoping for a few "I like it because" or "I don't like it because" comments.
    Either would be welcome.

    Thanks for the reply Ady
